Human-Centered innovation communities in the digital realm
Artistic and scientific practice tends to be at the forefront in highlighting and defining what a human-centered approach to developing, working with and implementing digital technologies can and should look like. At the same time, the public sector is also starting to consider human-centered technology and the humane application of digital technologies as central to policy and agenda setting, building communities around driving these topics forward within regional and city development.  Kristina Maurer will share her experiences working with innovation communities in both of these areas, and explore differences and commonalities in their approaches.

Kristina Maurer is a technology expert, media scientist and cultural producer at the nexus of digital technology and culture, digital transformation and innovation. As part of the Digital Technologies team in the Technology Services department of Vienna Business Agency, she is currently the expert responsible for the key topics of digital humanism, digital sustainability. In her professional career to date, she has acted as Head of European Projects for the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz and executive producer for „Compass – Navigating the Future“, the redesign of the Ars Electronica Center. Her research interests focus on the socio-political and societal implications of digital technologies, human-centered technology development and innovation, and the intersection of technology, art and innovation.
